A Manhattan Grand Jury indicted former President Donald J. Trump on Thursday.
Former President Donald Trump, on March 18, said that he would be arrested in the coming days for payments he allegedly made to stripper Stormy Daniels.
The indictment has been filed under seal and will be announced in the coming days. The charges are not publicly known at this time.
“This is not an indictment of a crime—there was no crime—instead, this news is the indictment of a failed nation. President Trump is promising to peacefully end the war in Ukraine, dismantle the deep state, and save our country by putting America first. For that, the political elites and powerbrokers have weaponized government to try and stop him. They will fail. He will be re-elected in the greatest landslide in American history, and together we will all Make America Great Again, — Taylor Budowich, CEO of Make America Great Again Inc.
On Truth Social last Wednesday, Trump said, “The Rogue prosecutor, who is having a hard time with the Grand Jury, especially after the powerful testimony against him by Felon Cohen’s highly respected former lawyer, is attempting to build a case that has NEVER BEEN BROUGHT BEFORE AND ACTUALLY, CAN’T BE BROUGHT. If he spent this time, effort, and money on fighting VIOLENT CRIME, which is destroying NYC, our once beautiful and safe Manhattan, which has become an absolute HELLHOLE, would be a much better place to live!”
Trump said that the Manhattan district attorney was preparing to indict him for “hush money” payments he supposedly made to Daniels in 2016.
Trump’s critics contend he paid off Daniels to keep her quiet about an affair so as to not hurt his first presidential campaign.
Republicans ripped the potential indictment of former President Donald Trump Saturday, calling it “outrageous” and “politically motivated” in multiple posts on Twitter.

“A Trump indictment would be a national disaster. It is un-American for the ruling party to use police power to arrest its political rivals,” Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy tweeted. “If a Republican prosecutor in 2004 had used a campaign finance technicality to arrest then-candidate John Kerry while Bush & Cheney were in power, liberals would have cried foul – and rightly so.”
